California, MD (PRWEB) January 10, 2013
Dr. Phillip M. Christie at Christie Dentistry joins only one percent of all dental professionals in the country by providing the revolutionary Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure for periodontal disease treatment. This minimally invasive procedure allows for treatment without removing healthy gum tissue, which is unavoidable with traditional gum surgery. Patients suffering from gum pain associated with periodontal disease now have an alternative treatment method.
Utilizing a laser to eliminate bacteria and sterilize the area where the bacteria resided, there is no need to cut away healthy gum tissue to get to the problem. LANAP is very selective and only attacks the bacteria and gum tissue that has become diseased. Bleeding is minimal and the laser stimulates clotting to help seal the gums to the roots. At this point they can begin to reattach. The laser also stimulates bone growth.
Many people do not realize the serious health consequences of gum disease. It has been linked to problems such as low birth-weight babies, heart disease and pancreatic cancer. Patients requiring periodontal disease treatment no longer need to stress about the invasive surgery and extensive healing that comes with traditional methods of treatment. The hope with LANAP is that many patients that have gone untreated will now come forward and get the periodontal disease treatment that they need.
Gum pain can be reduced or eliminated through the LANAP procedure, and teeth slated for extraction may be retainable because of the laser stimulating regeneration. The laser procedure helps patients recover in a relatively short period of time. Dr. Christie is hoping more patients will become aware of the new treatment options and come forward. This laser allows patients to save their teeth and their health. To learn more about Christie Dentistry and the LANAP procedure, visit http://www.dentist-maryland.com.
